A truly outstanding Filipino badfilm shot in Japan with an American overactor and a Japanese non-actress making a frankenstein of plants. I was startled from the very first scene at James Craig's wrathful scientist, becoming furious at everything all the time, and startled by the remarkable plantenstein with venus flytraps for hands and feet, that eats puppies and rabbits with them. This startlement, as well as the brief appearance of five topless women, made up for the sleep-inducing qualities of almost everything else, and the nutty percussive musical score. It sure was a lot crazier than I expected. Not good but crazy. Two stars because it gets one for gals with no shirts on and one for a good monster suit. Note - according to IMDB "The credits on the version of this movie which exists today are actually for the movie Mad Doctor of Blood Island and bear no relation to this film. This comes from when they were originally intended to be released as a double feature." So if you are really hoping to see John Ashley and Angelique Pettyjohn, you are out of luck.
